Beautiful DIY Spring Decor to Try This Season

Give your home a boost with these gorgeous DIY spring decor ideas. We have inspiration for planters, centerpieces, front door decor—and so much more.

Caged Door Craft

Spring door decor doesn't get much cuter than this stuffed birdcage. Nestle fresh tulips or your favorite flower into a vintage birdcage, then adorn with ribbon and pussy willow stems. 

Pretty Paper Wreaths

The secret to these eye-catching wreaths? Dyed book pages. Instead of tossing an old cookbook or novel, repurpose its pages to create a one-of-a-kind spring decoration. Make wreaths in a variety of sizes, colors, and patterns, then hang in a cluster. 

Watercolor Table Runner

You don't have to go to Oz to find a stunning rainbow. Make this table runner with doilies, watered-down acrylic paint in fresh pastel shades, and decoupage medium. Blot alternating colors of paint onto doilies, overlap, and connect with decoupage. If desired, attach kraft paper for stability.

    Add a pretty and practical hint of green to your kitchen with a DIY magnetic herb garden you can stick on the fridge.

    Hand-Painted Name Tags

    We're all about woodland decor for spring. Add a dash of whimsy to your spring table with hand-painted place settings. Dab name cards with watercolor paint—we used blue and green to mimic grass—then place into sliced birch rounds. 

    Colorful Twig Wreath

    Dress up a store-bought wreath with layers of color. Sporadically wrap medium-weight yarn in a variety of shades around a branch or reed-based wreath. Secure ends with clear-drying glue. 

    Transform humble crepe paper into the prettiest paper peonies you've ever seen. Use your paper flowers to embellish a wreath, gifts and more.

    Chalkboard Calendar

    If you're falling behind on a New Year's resolution, there's still time to catch up. Get organized with a DIY chalkboard wall calendar. Mark and measure a grid with seven columns and five rows. Apply bold paint to the top row, then tint with white as you progress for an ombre effect.

    DIY Marbelized Pots

    Budget-friendly terra-cotta pots get a luxe makeover with the help of a few simple materials. Swirl blue and green spray paints in water, then dip pots. Fill with your favorite spring blooms for a stylish spring centerpiece.

    Turn old signage into a showstopping succulent wreath with this brilliant DIY project.

    Turn a rad flea market find into something even cooler with the help of succulents. This DIY monogram wreath combines vintage charm with fresh greens. 

    Butterfly Wall Decals

    Personalize your terra-cotta pots with these three simple updates.

    Easy Terra-Cotta Pot Updates

    Don't let your plants get all the attention. Etched patterns, wrapping paper, and geometric lines turn terra-cotta pots from boring to beautiful. 

    Bird Watch

    Welcome spring with a trio of bird accessories on an end table or bookshelf. Look for little accents—nests, eggs, birdcages, and flowers—then arrange together for a seasonal look. 

    Go beyond framed prints and 2D art and branch out into something with more dimension. This tassel art project is DIY at its finest. And it's super simple.

    Tassel Wall Art

    Bright dip-dyed tassels add major style to this wall. The DIY calls for only seven materials, and the cord texture makes an eye-catching display. 

    Color-Block Containers

    Freshen up your entry with bright blooms. Color-block a pot by painting it one color, blocking off a section with painters tape, then applying a second coat in a contrasting color. Or wrap and glue rope around a planter before painting a bold stripe.

    Air plants add unique interest to any space. See inspiring ways to style air plants for an even bigger impact.

    5 Stunning Air Plant Ideas

    Air plants make any space instantly chic. Try them hanging from the ceiling, glued to a wreath, or even as part of a chandelier. 

    Botanical Prints

    Remember that thrift store art you had to have? Give it a style boost by sewing patterns onto the image with embroidery floss. Spray-paint the frame a bright, fun color to give the piece a modern edge.
